Michael Jackson’s THRILLER Is Getting an Official Documentary

Michael Jackson's THRILLER

Michael Jackson’s estate and Sony Music Entertainment are working jointly on an official documentary feature movie, which is set to be directed by Nelson George.

The movie “takes fans back in time to the making of the record-breaking album and release of revolutionary short films that redefined the music video format and captivated audiences globally. ’Billie Jean’ remains the most streamed Michael Jackson song and ‘Thriller’ is the only music video that has been inducted onto the elite National Film Registry of the Library of Congress.”

The documentary will include “never-before-seen footage and candid interviews,” and will chronicle “the point in Jackson’s career that launched the singer into mega-stardom and created a pop culture phenomenon that is woven through the culture and continues to influence the worlds of music, television, dance, fashion and more to this day.”

Nelson George said in a statement: “The release of Thriller redefined Michael Jackson, taking him from teen star to adult superstar, who composed memorable songs, sang beautifully, and reached the highest level of on-stage performance. The album, and the short films they inspired, created a new template for marrying music and image. It’s been a privilege to explore this extraordinary album and revisit its magic.”

The “Thriller” music video will be a central focus of the documentary. The music video was directed by John Landis and featured a famous spoken-word sequence from Vincent Price.
